According to a rumor, Chargers’ Justin Herbert is available and scheduled to start the Jaguars in Week 3 at home.

Justin Herbert, the standout quarterback for the Los Angeles Chargers, fractured the cartilage in one of his ribs late in the team’s Week 2 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, and his availability for Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars was questioned. Herbert was not included among the inactives, though, when the Chargers released them on Sunday afternoon. According to ESPN, he will dress and begin today.

Chase Daniel would have started in Herbert’s place if he had been unable to move. It’s intriguing that three quarterbacks are on the field today for Los Angeles, according to The Athletic. Easton Stick, Daniel, and Herbert are all clothed.

The Chargers medical staff “encouraged” Herbert, per ESPN, to consider his options carefully because the rib cartilage issue can continue for a few weeks to many months. Even though Herbert will wear rib protection, it won’t be enough to keep him from rotating while throwing. He reportedly also used an ultrasound imaging monitor to administer a painkiller injection.

This week on Wednesday and Thursday, Herbert only put in a small amount of work, but he sat out on Friday. In spite of the fact that Daniel is about to begin his second season with the Chargers, he hasn’t started a game since he played for the Chicago Bears in 2019. The 35-year-old has made a total of five starts throughout his career, going 2-3.
